Paris and I use Diverse Solutions for our IDX provider, where we build those cute and view-able maps that use the Google Map Interface. Our maps render what we design them too – Available properties for sale in specific cities, Foreclosures, Short Sales, Sold properties and Rentals. Anything we design them to render.
What do they show after they are built? It’s a Google Map.
I suppose this was something that was “in the cards”. I heard Grant Gould, a while ago, with Spatial Match, another great home search mapping system, mention on a radio show, that this might be the way Google will go with their Maps.
I know for a fact Diverse Solutions will not let their clients be hung out to dry. The same with Grant Gould and the folks at Spatial Match. But it is worth a conversation isn’t it?
What Real Estate services do you provide to your clients that uses Google Maps? Do you think this will affect your Clients ability to search on your Websites for Real Estate and Homes for sale? Do you think that Google will start offering ad words integration into Google Maps?
